drum for romney in our state. we have another poll coming out in the middle of october. i suspect if it shows that romney is closing the gap a little bit you'll see more of susana martinez on the trail. jenna: one of the things you have reported is something about romney's campaign pulling out key people inside the state. maybe these guys are turning their back on the state and i'm curious to explore that a little bit more. >> that was a pretty interesting indication of where they think this race is coming. they pulled their hispanic outreach coordinator communications director out state of to send him to florida i believe. that just shows resources are tight and they really want to compete where they can win and possibly get the most electoral votes. to a lot of people in moo mexico who saw the news it seemed as a concession of new mexico by the romney campaign. jenna: great reporting by you. it's always grit to have you on the program. we look forward to checking in with you over the next couple of weeks. thank you. jon: who took round one last night? what do you think? it appears

in virginia. the battleground state with 13 electoral votes up for grabs. governor romney attending a rally in a few moments in washington county which supported john mccain by a 2-to-1 margin over the president in 2008. more on that in a moment. right now back to our top story, the drop in the national unemployment rate. it now stands officially at 7.8% in september. the economy adding 114,000 jobs last month, but not nearly enough to keep pace with population growth. so how does the overall rate drop? if we delve deeper into the numbers what does it really tell us about the health. economy five weeks from election day? charles payne, fox business network and ceo of w street.com. he joins us now. charles, if 114,000 jobs added will not keep pace with population growth, how does the rate drop? >> jon, when the bureau labor statisticses does the monthly job survey, they do two of them. one they call the establishment survey. that is the one we really take our cue from. that is the businesses. the other one is the household survey. extraordinarily volatile and that's the one where all o

doing in some of these states. you're right, it absolutely could turn around. until we see romney leading in a lot of these averages in a lot of these states the president still has the edge. jon: one of the questions is about voter enthusiasm. one poll says republican enthusiasm, especially post-debate, is much higher than it is among democrats. if this is going to be a base election where turning out your base is critically important that could be huge for the gop. >> no question about that. in the last month or so, we've seen democrats have had the edge in terms of enthusiasm. part of that was a as a result of the democratic convention which seemed to have better sort of reaction than the republican convention but the debate did seem to change that. democrats will tell you that, they may have gotten complacent and the president's debate performance maybe helped them out of that. jon: curious, i know you're there, waiting for mitt romney to speak in lexington, curious that foreign policy is going to be the focus. most americans don't base their votes in large part on foreign pol

. i'm not as confident romney will make up in the swing states what he needs to make up to beat the president in one debate especially with more debates coming. we don't know. at end of the day we have really good jobs report despite republicans are saying. it shows progress and may not be as quick as people like. nevertheless moving in the right direction. that is what voters look at much more than one debate performance. jon: ron, despite the constant coverage on fox news channel and other place as lot of experts say people aren't really even paying attention to the race until just about now and maybe now, despite the conventions and the negative advertising from the obama campaign and so forth, people are just now forming their opinions of governor romney. is there something to that? >> oh, absolutely. you had around 67 million voters watching, watching the debate where, romney cleaned obama's clock and showed exactly what he stood for. he laid out his plans. he laid out his vision for the future. you know, he talked about helping the middle class. he talked about making sure tha

clear politics of a bunch of polls. the president almost at 50%, governor mitt romney at 44.5%. elizabeth crumb join us, co-anchor of the agenda, a daily political talk show. thanks for being with us, elizabeth. it would seem as though the housing crisis in your state, not to mention the incredibly high unemployment rate, would actually favor the challenger, mitt romney. true? >> well, you would think so in conventional wisdom, it would certainly say so. but if you look at the polls throughout the summer really but even most recently in september, most of them do lean president obama's way, and so i think there's a question in nevada as to whether voters believe that mitt romney's got a better plan for fixing what ails nevada than simply staying the course with president obama. greg greg as i understand it, the demographics favor the president. is he counting on hispanic votes to carry him through? >> absolutely. that's a big part of the picture here. hispanics now make up about 27 percent of the population in nevada. we've really seen those numbers grow over the past ten year

month a cnn poll found governor romney leads president obama among likely independent voters by a substantial 14 points. 54%, look at this, to 40%. he also leads among independents in critical swing states like ohio and florida, and yet, "u.s. news & world report" points out there has been almost no mention of it in the media. i wonder why? >> well, i think what you are starting to see is that independents are largely part of the 60% of americans that think this country is off on the wrong track and right now that they are giving a stark contrast to what this election presents in terms of more government centered country or a free enterprise system that governor romney offers, one that rewards innovation and entrepreneurship. but the bigger thing that you also see in the numbers is, in eight of 12 battleground states the democrats really lost a lot of voter registration. when you look at battle ground states, in 2008, president obama won state like wisconsin by 14 points, nevada by 13. new hampshire and iowa 10 respectively. colorado by nine. all the battleground states are dead-e

. gregg: governor romney owns a pretty nice violation home in your state, spends allots of time there, he's opened nine different offices throughout new hampshire he's been campaigning heavily, of course during the primary it was very important for him. juxtapose that to president obama, how good is his ground game in new hampshire? >> his ground game is very good particularly in the last particulars months. the president has been here three times. vice president joe biden has been here seven times in the past year, every week they've had dozens of staff on the ground in new hampshire for obama for months and months, got a real head start on canvassing, phone calling and motivating that democratic base that had been sagging a year ago. that is almost up to the same level of intensity of republican support for mitt romney and that's what makes this race so close and i think it will stay close all the way to november 6th. gregg: kevin, great to see you, thanks so much for your incites. jenna: you talk about the ground game and voter turn out, what about absentee ballots, what about legi

in the places that states that need to be run and this was the night to turn around for mitt romney. he will be hoping that that's what happened in the days to come. jenna: we don't have those numbers now but we will have them in the next few days to see what the impact was. a.b. nice to have you. gregg: syria admits it shelled a tush kish village and apologized for the five deaths. they are stopping short of calling the military action a declaration of war. leland vittert is following the story live from our mideast bureau in jerusalem. what is the latest? >> reporter: right now, jon, you think a very tense calm right now between the syrians and the turks that have stopped just short of war. the turkish government has authorized the use of force and authorized its military to cross the border into syria if necessary. they say that is a warning, not yet a declaration of war. this began midday when a syrian mortar shell landed inside a turkish border village. that killed five people and the response by turkey was almost immediately with responding with retal story shelling, not only

. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states! [cheers and applause] gregg: republicans didn't waste anytime trying to utilize the biden remark, did they? >> we'll be hearing a lot about that over the next couple weeks. and i can assure you the white house wishes they could reverse time and get biden to say something, anything different from that. but you know, for those us in the press that is the nice thing about joe biden. he is always sort of ad-libbing and giving us great things to write about. gregg: that updates the biden gaffe clock that the rnc always run on their website. paul ryan seems to have recalculated the infamous 47% remark that, hess running mate uttered. take a listen to this. >> today, 70% of americans get more benefits from the federal government in dollar value than they pay back in taxes. so you could argue we're already past that tippingpoint. the good news is, survey after survey, poll after poll, still shows that we are a center-right, 70-30 country. 70% of the americans want the american dream. they be
